Not as good as my favorite El Sombero in Bradenton, FL. Looks and tastes boring here in NC

Lots of Mexican items served promptly with friendly service. Good take out menu also. For those staying at area hotels , be sure to ask for your 10 percent discount.

Service was very good, and the food selection is very complete. The meals were good, and authentic, and PRICE, was fabulous! Family of 4, filled to the brim with "doggy" bags is $50 with tip!

Food: Awesome! Their enchilada sauce is probably the best I've ever had, and their cheese dip is heavenly. Generous portions - if you like variety try the #26 [1 enchilada, 1 taco, 1 quesadilla, & rice], a combo I've never seen in a Mexican restaurant...More
